NHMU is pleased to present the 2023 Lecture Series, Frontlines of Archaeology, presented in conjunction with our special exhibition Angkor: Empire of Cambodia. Registration is required for all lectures and links with registration details for each speaker are available at the bottom of this page.
Frontlines of Archaeology
The human desire to explore our past reveals insights into our present and future. From caves inhabited by early humans to the grand cities of Angkor, the world is filled with mysteries of our ancestors that continue to captivate our imaginations and illuminate our world. For the 2023 Lecture Series, we invite you to explore the Frontlines of Archaeology with four intrepid explorers whose fascination and research of the past have unearthed incredible insights into human history.
Tickets are free for all lectures except the keynote, and online registration is required for all. Please note that locations differ for each lecture, and Dr. Alison Carter will speak twice at two separate locations.
Inspiration for the 2023 Theme
The special exhibition Angkor: Empire of Cambodia inspires this year’s lecture series and will take you on a journey of scientific inquiry into one of the greatest civilizations of the past. Today Angkor is a cultural treasure to the Khmer people and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Angkor is a living heritage site and home to numerous significant religious monuments and temples, which attracts over two million tourists every year. See the exhibit at NHMU now through April 23.
